Capital Gains Yield Definition
Capital Gains Yield is the price appreciation on an investment relative to the amount one initially invested. For example, if one buys a stock for $10 and the share price goes to $12, the capital gains yield is 20%.
The capital gains yield calculation formula is as follows:
Capital gains yield = (P1 - P0) / P0
Where: P0 = Original price of the security P1 = Current/Market price of the security
